Pale and deep golden orange pour with a thin white head and thin bands of lacing ..... aroma of earthy/floral hops, citrusy grapefruit and orange and piney hops, simcoe comes out strong in this one pungent .... taste is rindy with grapefruit, orange, earthy and floral hops, piney and bitter dry hopped on the back end ... nice malty flavors, caramel and toasted malts .... finish is bitter and rindy with dry hops and lingering citrusy and floral hops ..... solid and sessionable these 7-9 hops variety IPA's always come out average to me though raymow (1885) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 2, 2017
on tap at Crafty's in Northeast Phila - nice golden color. Great citrusy hop aroma. Nice sweet hoppy flavor. onceblind (11147) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 20, 2017
Very slightly hazy rich golden with a large rocky white head. Brisk earthy leafy hoppy nose with a bitter bit of pine and dankness. Solid flavor that’s pale and caramellish with a bitter piney and orange pithy flavor, lots of earthy bitter hops and brisk leafy bitterness on the finish.

Pours two fingers of head on a slightly hazy straw body.
Aroma is resinous pine, lemon, overripe grapefruit and pineapple.
Taste has a strong pine and grapefruit bitterness, big malt bones too.
Texture is thicker. gyllenbock (10277) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2017
On tap at Twisted Taps, San Diego. A bit hazy orange with a white head. Aroma and taste of hops, citrus, light tropical fruit, some malt and caramel. The body was medium as was the bitterness. Kind of soft and easy to drink.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a cloudy orange with small off white head. The aroma is grass and melon. Medium body, grass, pine, lingering bitterness, good. Ibrew2or3 (8989) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 27, 2016
22oz bomber pours with a near perfect hop hazed copper body that has thin gold edges and supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up pine hops, malt sweetened grapefruit like citrus hops, malts and a bit of crystal malts. After it warmed a bit some floral hops start to open up. The taste is pretty bitter with hops where pine takes a quick strangle hold on the experience dealing sharp bitter and resiny pine sap hoppiness. Another sip, and yes this is a big ole’ bitter hoppy brew. To midway thin streams of faintly juicy grapefruit and tangelo are noticed taking this pine hoppy train ride right into the finish. Like in the nose; as it warms it picks up some floral like hops. If you’re ready for hops and hop bitterness this won’t disappoint. This works for me. coreyc1221 (319) - Truckee, California, USA - SEP 23, 2016
Citrus hippy aroma with a bit of copper. Light hazy dark orange color with nice micro foamed cream head. Smooth crisp IPA. There’s a nice light creaminess to it. dudelikesbeer (4) - USA - SEP 6, 2016 does not count
Tons of sticky pine on the nose and first sip. Resiny mouth puckering complex hop character with citrus rind. Sweet malt note on finish. zoucrew102 (2312) - - AUG 21, 2016
Bomber, thanks Christina! Grapefruit citrus hop aroma with pine resiny hop and slight tropical fruit notes. Pours clear copper colored with a huge, soapy off white head that has excellent retention and moderate lacing. Starts with grapefruit citrus hop flavors as well as a touch of tropical fruit. Finishes dry and quite bitter from the strong pine resiny hop flavor that asserts itself quickly and overcomes the palate. Pretty good IPA, however the finish is quite bitter.
